This Sounds More Like An AJ/Chargers Signing: LB Quincy Black


Have you heard of him? Nope… That’s why it sounds like a free agent signing that AJ would make.

We all were surprised with the signing of Bob Sanders, so maybe AJ has changed his stripes, but I doubt it. AJ would much prefer to sign a player that is under the radar and give him an opportunity to get some playing time (Kevin Burnett).

Pewter Report mentions Quincy Black as a possible free agent that we may pursue. He has been a special team stud in Tampa under our new special teams coach and he just started seeing more playing time as a starting linebacker before becoming a free agent.

If anything, a signing like this could challenge Larry English to step his game up. It will add competition and depth to the position. We can always use help on our special teams and Black knows our new coach’s philosophy.

Of course we want a more impact free agent signing, but role players are always needed.

Here is the only highlight I could find on Black in my quick search:

    Black has got got Chargers free agent signing all over it. It would not surprise me 1 bit to see this guy in bolts this season. Add to our LB and ST play,and thats exactly what i think the chargers need to upgrade on. Plus his old ST coach is now with us. It would be 1 of those signing where your like “who” and then he ends up being a solid player for years to come.
